Demystifying the Routes to Furniture Procurement

Friday, February 8th, 2019 at 12:02 pm | Categories: Events and Exhibitions, Furniture Consultancy.

Operandum has been successfully delivering over the past months a CPD on the procurement routes to furniture market. This presentation is mainly aimed at sharing our knowledge of the furniture industry providing thorough information on how the buying and selling operate. It’s also designed to give more clarity on the pros and cons of each route: traditional, resellers and purely fee-based consultancy.

It’s also aimed at demystifying conventional blurred procurement channels and how they can erode the client’s budget. We also discuss market trends and their impact.


In London, traditional furniture costs represent nearly 20% of total fitout cost. With Agile working this percentage goes up to 24% due to increasing Agile furniture demands. (Source: CBRE, EMEA Fit Out Cost Guide 2017/18)
